Espresso Freddo – Summer Drink For Real Coffee Lovers

One of the reasons why I love espresso so much is because it’s small sized coffee with enough caffeine to shake up my mornings.

Another reason to love such a small coffee drink is that espresso is so versatile drink and a base for most popular coffee drinks like cappuccino, latte, machiato, and so on.

You can drink it hot, cold, with milk, flavored, your imagination is your limit.

But this particular espresso drink, no matter how old, is totally new to me.

Espresso Freddo is very old iced coffee drink invented in Greece in 1993. Shaken with ice, this coffee drink will give you the coolness and caffeine without having your coffee watering down. The secret: 2 or 3 espresso shots.

Now, that’s what I call strong iced coffee.
